Some of my favorite songs with an edge to them...
I'm typically not one for remakes, but I thought this was one of the best I've ever heard. (Jimi Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower takes that title, a pretty obvious choice.)
A very forboding stanza and surrealistic guitar make this a favorite.
Kudos to the Navy for putting this as background in a few of their commercials. A staccato rhythm with a driving guitar riff - always a good combo. (Unfortunately, there was a sweet drum fill leading into the second verse that was only the album version.)
Turning back the time machine a bit...who doesn't love a guitar god? (And a special shout-out to this dude, who plays the whole song pretty much dead on and has more musical talent in two fingers than I have total.)
And two from my No. 2 favorite band of all-time, Iron Maiden (behind only Led Zeppelin). What can I say? I'm a sucker for pounding bass, tight riffs, quick drums and high-pitched power vocals. First up, "The Evil That Men Do":
And secondly, "Can I Play With Madness":
Hope you liked them. Just don't tell your mom.
